Tails of Sydney outtakes 1-10 | Sydney Dog Photographer

Much of my time has been taken up with Tails of Sydney recently so I'm going to share some outtakes from the first ten to keep my blog up-to-date. It kills me to have to keep my favourites under wraps but I'm saving them for the book which will be ready by the end of...

With Tails of Sydney shooting in full swing (plus commercial and private client work) I haven't had much time for rescue photos but I did manage to squeeze this bunch of lookers into three afternoons during February. The first seven are in care with Fetching Dogs and...

If you dig back through my blog archives (please don't!) you'll find two previous appearances by Riley and one by Spencer and Flynn. Their owner has been a loyal supporter and friend since I started out – I first met her five cameras ago! During 2015 I was tasked with...

the best of 2015 | sydney dog photographer*

At this time of year I like to sit down and take a look back at all the furry faces I was lucky enough to photograph in the previous twelve months. It's a time when I reflect on the highlights of the year and set goals for the following year. 2015 was a very difficult...

My last round up of adoptables for the year is here and it's like a New Year's Eve white party! While I have no issue photographing white or black or black and white dogs I've been told by Fetching Dogs that I will have some other coloured dogs to look forward to...
